Hello! First I am new at this forum and would like to say hello to everybody :)
Second- I am looking for a good tutorial on artificial Earth satellites orbit perturbations. Can somebody give me an advice where I can find it? Do you know any propagation algorithms for artificial satellites that involves main perturbations (earths potential, solar pressure, 3rd body)?

Bond and Allman, Modern Astrodynamics should help with ambient gravitational field of the Earth plus perturbations from Moon, a second satellite (not sure what you have in mind), but not, I think, solar wind buffeting. But you probably wouldn't try to model the latter anyway--- its too complicated.
